Can you guys post your charger:
- input current & voltage
- output current & voltage
- The time to fully charge an empty battery
- mention the capacity of the battery

You should measure the current when you charge the battery.

My data:
Two stingo combined, 1 A output current, charge 70Ah in 15 hours. Input current should be about 2.5 Amp.
Single stingo, 350 mA output current, charge 1000mAh under 15 minutes. Input current should be about 800mA.

Other charger:
For 1000mAh battery, with 500mA charging current, 1 hours 40 minutes.
For 700mAh to 1200mAh battery, with 500mA charging current, 1.5 hours to 3 hours.

(Bedini) Reinaissance Charger, RC-2A12, 2 Amp output:
Fully discharged 25 AH or 200 CCA Battery . . approx. 11 Hours
Fully discharged 50 AH or 400 CCA Battery . . approx. 22 Hours
Fully discharged 100 AH or 850 CCA Battery . approx. 44 Hours

Reinaissance Charger, RC-1AU, 1 Amp output.
Fully discharged 1AH (1,000mAh) Battery . . approx. 2-4 HRS
Fully discharged 3AH (3,000mAh) Battery . . approx. 4-8 HRS
Fully discharged 7AH (7,000mAh) Battery . . approx. 8-14 HRS

Stingo is about 6 times faster. It is strange that r-charge product is not any faster than commercial charger. May indicate that capacitor dumping method is actually reduce charger efficiency. suggestion to capture radiant to capacitor then dump it later may be a bad suggestion.
